Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Baseball fan starts class-action case over Astros, Red Sox sign stealing”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Massachusetts man filed a class-action lawsuit against Major League Baseball, the Houston Astros and the Boston Red Sox over the teams’ stealing of signals between pitchers and catchers of opposing teams.

The suit filed Thursday in Manhattan Federal Court says the teams’ cheating cost fans money by hurting their fantasy baseball picks made through DraftKings — in which Major League Baseball is an investor.

Major League Baseball and its teams, including the Astros and Red Sox, “encouraged their fans to take a financial stake in DraftKings’ fantasy baseball wagering competitions,” the lawsuit says.
